Fair enough, let's run a poll on the matter.

Might be interesting. But mind you one more time- since the graph is not intended for people of the b3d kind, results are irrelevant to our debate.

Interesting opinion.

I tend to think as follows: If a graph comparing graphics cards is openly shown and released in the internet, it's intended for anyone interested in such content.

edit: Besides, come on, it's a graph comparing high end 3d graphics adapters. If this forum is not target audience for such matters, what is? Who is the graph intended for? And why not to us?

He would then say it's for the marketeers and resellers as an extra tool to sell their product (the one with the much larger bar.)

Why would you buy a Chevy? this Ford performs *so* much better.

Almost there. Just don't be so obsessed with evil marketing.

It's just because Mendel's photo shopping skills suck more than that of ATI/nV's PR departments

And here are your irrelevant results so far:
Code:
Graph style a).........4  	10.26%
Graph style b).........	29 	74.36%
Neither................5 	12.82%
Both...................1 	2.56%
Graph style a) here refers to the style of the original graph, b) would refer to full scale graph. (as edited by me, but ignoring it being crappy)

The first thing I think of when I see that graph is 1/5th of 1% difference.

What's funny is that below the graph they say:

Zeroing the graph definitely would have shown this more clearly.

Glad to see these 48X0 vs 8800 graphs properly scaled.

edit: the graph seems to have disappeared from that thread...

Indeed. Now if only I'd continued studying Turkish so the rest made sense

ZOMG. The red line is 7x as long as the green line! Where do I send my money? Do they take tips too?! If I send them a signed blank check and tell them to fill in what they feel is fair, will that work?

Bye bye 8800GTX. I bought a new mainboard, memory, psu and a 4800X2. That graph convinced me!

Why not start at 1.2 so that the competitors appear to score negative?
